Huai River Basin Marine Pollution Reduction
|Project Category:||Land-Based Sources/Coastal Zone|
The objective of the project is to demonstrate innovative and cost-effective pollution reduction practices in Dongying City in order to reduce discharge of land-based nutrient and pollution load to the Bohai Sea.
Dongying City is located in the southwestern bank of the Bohai Sea and established on one of PR China's major oil fields. Dongying has been the central city of the Yellow River delta with a total area of about 7,923 square kilometers, a total Bohai Sea coastline of over 350 kilometers, and a total population of about 1.8 million. Major pollution in Dongying is derived from both urban and rural areas and point and non-point sources suchas industries, household wastes, livestock wastes, chemical fertilizer and farm pesticides. Shandong Province, with the longest coastlines of the Bohai Sea and the Yellow Sea within the Huai River Basin, is contributing more nutrients and pollutants to these seas than any of the three other provinces within the basin, namely, Jiangsu, Anhui amd Henan.
